Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure that can help both women and men reduce excess fat that has collected in specific areas of the body. Pockets of excess fat can affect even those who are otherwise in the best shape of their lives, and they can be frustratingly resistant to strict dietary regimens and regular exercise programs. Liposuction from our experienced plastic surgeons here at Luxxery Boutique can effectively diminish excess fat and create enhanced contours in a variety of body areas.

Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?

Liposuction can be an ideal treatment for individuals who would like to reduce excess fat pockets in areas such as the: 

  • Abdomen 
  • Hips 
  • Flanks/”Love Handles” 
  • Buttocks 
  • Thighs 
  • Calves 
  • Ankles 
  • Arms 
  • Back 
  • Breasts 

The best candidates for liposuction are typically individuals who are close to the ideal weight for their body type but are experiencing pockets of excess fat in isolated areas that are simply not responding to diet and exercise. Candidates should also be in relatively good overall health and have reasonable expectations for the results of liposuction. It is important to note that liposuction is not intended to be a weight loss treatment—it is a procedure that is primarily designed to recontour specific body areas by removing collections of isolated, excess fat.

During your initial, complimentary consultation, our plastic surgeon will talk with you about your concerns and determine whether you are an ideal candidate for liposuction. If so, our doctor will create a customized treatment plan designed to meet your expectations with beautiful results.

“I was so afraid to actually go to a plastic surgeon. Dr. Hakki and all his staff made me feel so comfortable. His nurses really helped me through my recovery and explained everything along the way. I am so happy I decided to actually do it. Dr. Hakki really did change my life. Just do it !!!”

What Does the Liposuction Procedure Involve?

Our plastic surgeons typically utilize one of two advanced liposuction methods: the tumescent technique or the “super-wet” technique. Both of these approaches can allow for an easier extraction of excess fat cells in the targeted areas and reduce blood loss during the procedure. Our surgeon will begin by making tiny incisions in the treatment area, followed by insertion of long, thin tubes called cannulas. These cannulas will be used to carefully suction out the excess fat and produce enhanced body contours. Residual scarring from liposuction is often barely noticeable since the incisions required for this treatment are typically quite small.

Liposuction is usually performed as an outpatient procedure and requires general anesthesia in many cases. Large-volume liposuction may necessitate an overnight hospital stay for some patients.

Liposuction can be extraordinarily effective on its own, or combined with tummy tuck surgery or other body contouring procedures for a more comprehensive aesthetic makeover.

What Can I Expect During Recovery from Liposuction?

Patients can expect bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treated areas following the liposuction procedure; however, these effects should fade over the next few days and weeks. Our plastic surgeon will likely prescribe a compression garment to be worn for a specified period of time after surgery to help control swelling. Medication can alleviate discomfort during the recovery process. Most patients who have relatively small volumes of fat extracted are able to return to some of their normal daily routines after a few days. Individuals who have had larger amounts of fat removed may need at least a week of rest and recovery.
